Hypnobirthing

I first discovered the wonders of hypnobirthing when pregnant with my second baby. I was planning a VBAC (vaginal birth after caesarean) which turned out to be an incredible experience. I felt so calm and my sensations were so manageable that I kept thinking that I must still be in the early stages of labour. When I finally decided to buzz for a midwife I was fully dilated and bearing down! I used hypnobirthing again during my third pregnancy and again had a wonderful birth experience, this time at home.


Both times I had chosen to use Natal Hypnotherapy, created by Maggie Howell, so when I decided that I would like to train to be a hypnobirthing practitioner myself, it made complete sense to train with Maggie. What better method to share with other expectant parents than the method that I have used and loved! 

My course is a full antenatal education and hypnobirthing course. As well as the Natal Hypnotherapy syllabus, I also share with you some of the knowledge and information I have gathered as a Doula. We will spend a total of eight hours together, usually as four 2-hour sessions. 

"Sian was brilliant and supportive. She was knowledgeable and approachable, and addressed all our questions. The course was really tailored to our needs."

We will cover topics such as:
  • using hypnobirthing as a comfort measure, either alone or with medical pain relief
  • relaxation, visualisation and breathing techniques
  • birth preparation
  • birth physiology and biomechanics
  • practical comfort measures
  • your birth partner's role

You will get to enjoy a hypnosis session each time we meet and you will get to meet other local, expectant families. All course attendees will also receive pre-recorded hypnosis tracks to download and listen to in your own time, plus a gift bag of nourishing and nurturing goodies.

  • 8 hours of classes
  • MP3s of the hypnosis tracks and relaxing birth music
  • Effective Birth Preparation ebook by Maggie Howell, the founder of Natal Hypnotherapy
  • a gift bag of nourishing, nurturing goodies
  • individual refresher call closer to your baby's arrival
  • ongoing phone/email support

"My partner and I attended a hypnobirthing course with Sian and it was brilliant. Sian is very knowledgeable and experienced supporting couples through the birthing experience. The course helped us overcome our fears and look at our upcoming birth in a positive way. The tools and recordings were brilliant and we used them leading up to and during birth to relax. I credit hypnobirthing and a positive mindset to the great birth we had. Hypnobirthing helped me manage my surges throughout labour and during the birth. Thank you Sian for a fabulous course!"

Cost: £195 per couple group course / £225  per couple private course
